Swedish Armed Forces receive portable C-UAS

The Swedish Defence Materiel Administration (FMV) has delivered a number of airborne counter-uncrewed aerial systems (C-UAS) to the Swedish Armed Forces. The man-portable systems are intended to be carried on the soldier’s combat equipment and provide them with the capability to detect and disrupt drones without affecting their main task.

FMV, together with the Swedish Armed Forces’ command battle school in Enköping, has conducted tests and trials with various C-UAS for a number of years. 

FMV says technology development in the area is fast, which means that the systems must be further developed continuously. The selected systems delivered to the armed forces this June have that ability, said FMV.

Developing more widespread and potent C-UAS capabilities is one of the key policy recommendations of a report delivered by the Swedish Defence Commission in April.
